Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 26, 2014

A Republican Congressional candidate from Minnesota has amassed quite an archive of offensive blog posts, including one that identified certain female senators as "undeserving bimbos in tennis shoes." On a blog titled Mr. Conservative, the candidate, Jim Hagedorn, also derided American Indians, mocked the LGBTQ community, insulted President Barack Obama, and wrote of his general disdain for female Supreme Court justices, according to the Minnesota politics blog Bluestem Prairie.

..and in doing so, he adds his name to the long and distinguished roster of liberals who said the same thing of Sarah Palin.

Palin quit her only ever elected to government position, a Governor; could not possibly be elected to anything else ever again; and, is a babbling idiot.

The guy just says what his fellow Republicans think but are smart enough to not say.

Last Tuesday, Hagedorn won the GOP primary race...LOL
To make way for the campaign, Hagedorn deleted a number of his writings.

Still, many of Hagedorn's ramblings survived, both in Internet archives and screenshots originally captured by the Minnesota Independent.

Next time maybe he'll use IRS computers for his ramblings. You know, to ensure there are no records.

So now it's the war on bimbos?

Yeah, it's sexier than War on Women, according to GOP media consultants.

And when have they ever been wrong?

Jim Hagedorn joked about fumigating the arena that hosted Paul Wellstone's memorial service, after mourners - which he surmised included pedophiles and "tree huggers" left.

About the memorial service. Hagedorn wrote "Was it just me or did it not seem as if someone bailed out the union thugs; tree huggers; abortion rights feminists; peaceniks; citizens for gay animal rights; ------ members and the other Marxist sympathizers who protested at last month's IMF meetings, and transported them to Wellstone's memorial in a slew of green busses? Talk about lefties all in one convenient location. Hopefully after the ceremony they fumigated the arena.

As usual, Liberals could care less about the truth and only care about feelings. America has become one big Liberal playground. It used to be "Sticks and stone will break my bones but words will never hurt me", but since the 50s Liberals have changed it to "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will cause massive hysteria and create whiny brats who then breed and create more whiny brats.

Who cares what a politician says. Go by his/her actions. Lincoln was a racist who is quoted in the record books as saying he could never treat a black man as his equal, but that didn't stop him from fighting for what was right. What someone personally believes and what they feel is right for the entire country are two different things.

Perhaps it was a true statement.
